Art Talk Provides Information on Exhibition of Korean Talismans

October 6, 2011

University of Wyoming Department of History Chair and Associate Professor Michael Brose will give an art talk in conjunction with the UW Art Museum exhibition "Talismans of Protection from Choson Korea: Antique Locks, Latches, and Key Charms" Monday, Oct. 10, at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

The exhibition features rare antique metalwork on loan from the Lock Museum in Seoul, Korea and organized for travel by the Korea Society, New York. The objects, which are in the forms of dragons, turtles, butterflies and more, are richly symbolic and exquisitely decorative examples of traditional Korean aesthetic and craft traditions.

Brose's talk will provide context for these objects, as well as historical information on the Choson Dynasty, Korea's last and longest ruling dynasty. For additional information about the UW Art Museum call (307) 766-6622 or visit the museum's webpage at www.uwyo.edu/artmuseum or blog at hwww.uwartmuseum.blogspot.com.
